   arrow in (10): Press the FRONT-LEVER with the left hand and pull-out the CARRIAGE
   to the right with the right hand.
 o Flip the calculator upside down again. Loose the 4 screws in the center of the
   4 feet. Lift the BOTTOM-PLATE with feet and screws. Now there is access to the
   2x2 screws of the side-plates, 3 screws of the front-unit and 3 screws of the
   back-unit ... Remove the screws.
 o Start to remove the LEFT-SIDE-PLATE: Be aware of its 2 clips!
 o Move the RIGHT-SIDE-PLATE ( has 2 clips too!) to the right.
   See (2): Unscrew and remove the CRANK-LOCK. Remove the right-side-plate ...
 o Remove the FRONT-UNIT ( pressing both black keys !)

See (4) ... (7): The BEARINGS OF THE INPUT-UNIT HAVE TO BE REMOVED! Press-down
the FRONT-LEVER with A WEIGHT (!) to have free hands. LIFT-AND-WIGGLE the INPUT-

 o Replace the 4 FEET temporarely to have CEARENCE for TEST-Operation !!!

Set INPUT-UNIT to ZERO - Set INPUT-DISPLAY to ZERO. Place INPUT-CYLINDER so, that
ZERO-LEVERs on top. Replace RIGHT BEARING temporary. Place the COUNTER-FINGERs
as shown in (8a)&(8b). Replace the LEFT BEARING temporary. It should be working:
 o Cranking the Input-Unit clockwise & counter-clockwise.
 o The "TOP-FINGER" has to pass the "GAP" in the axle!
 o The "DOWN-FINGER" has to fit in the SQUARE, when levers are lifted.
 o The "REVERSE-LOCK" synchronization prevents changing direction in a crank-cycle
 o Setting INPUT-NUMBERS: Have to show the right DISPLAY-NUMBERS.
